With the axes, my life was not laid from the very beginning. My first ax was bought on that day when the father-in-law built a bath in his plot. There is a bath, there are water, there are big chumbans, but there is no ax. After work, I jumped into some kind of shopping store and bought the first ax: a wooden handle and painted with a black lacquer, the production of some unnamed IP.
Having arrived home, I proudly handed the ax test. He satively examined the ax and sent me … Like firewood:
I gain water, and you are the cohes of firewood, the beyon.
The cunning plan of the testing of the diseases understood literally in a couple of minutes. What to say, the strength is — the mind is not necessary. Put a chump more, Raaaaaaaahasa and …
And split into two parts!
With one hit!
No, I, of course, understood that the axes are now disposable, but not to the same degree. I had to take money from the piggy bank and go to the city for a new ax. The new ax was a well-known Fiskars company, produced in the present, that neither the Finnish region itself!
Price … from the pilor, khm.
Again, rrrrrrrzammy ……
-The chokes, chisk, chisk, chisk, cheek
After that I had a lot of axes. Dear and cheap, large and small, universal, tourist … Even a decorative ax, produced in places not so remote. The longer all the Ermak lasted with a glass-plastic handle.
But everything was not that!
But now I know what I need!
And looking for this legend!
And I helped me in this case.
During my Sunday hike to the «flea» market, walking around the rows, I noticed the familiar «back». It was my recent friend — Blacksmith. He walked around the ranks of the alarms scored by the old trash, including a rusty Soviet tool.
What is not on this market! Axes, files, chisels, screwdrivers, other trifles and «brief». Sergey walked around the rows with a tool, stayed near every merchant, where the old axes lay and carefully examined them.
It turned out, he was looking for legendary axes, which were made in the middle of the twentieth century. But not everything in a row, but the axes of the Zlatoust Instrument Combine, which were made from 1944 to 1956.
What are they so valuable?
Night! They are made on conscience:
Passed perfect, in terms of technical process, hardening
But, most importantly, in the production of these axes in Zlatoust, a special and completely clean, without unnecessary impurities, armory, which was produced in Germany was used. That is, the axes were made of trophy weapons captured by our warriors!
Knowing blacksmiths are looking for these axes, they clean them, polish, give a new form, they apply a drawing, black and get a masterpiece. The author’s ax, produced from the Top Topors 1944 — 1956, can cost up to 25 thousand. And the same ax, but the «only» 6-7 thousand has been made later than 1956.
So now I am also looking for a legendary ax: Zeke 1944 — 1956.
So it goes.
